Per Pat “I have had the great privilege to dedicate virtually my entire career in the service of others, the vast majority of whom have been people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Over the years I have come to know thousands of people with needs and abilities similar to those served by HOPE Center for the Arts as well as their remarkable family members. It has been my professional passion to see these persons thrive as valued and valuable members of our communities. Accordingly, I feel a strong connection to HOPE’s mission and am hopeful I might contribute to the organization’s successful achievement of its vision.”
